Spine Program


Overview
San Juan Regional Medical Center healthcare providers understand that your back is the main support structure of your entire body. The Spine program offers the community a highly coordinated program for reducing your back and neck pain. The program is largely comprised of two areas of focus: a specialized inpatient process and community education.

Coordinated inpatient process The second part of the program is a specialized inpatient process that readies patients for surgery and a successful outcome.
